A couple of weeks ago, I started in a new role- I’m now the Learning & Development Manager for US HR for Sun Life. I’m still in learning & development, but I’ve shifted to an entirely different part of the company and am now working in HR, which is awesome because it lets me have a bit of a broader talent development scope than I’ve had in some previous roles.
Now two weeks in, here are some of my observations:
- I love working with the US teams. So far everyone I have met has been awesome and so many of their goals seem well aligned, which is awesome.
- Working from home is pretty great. I’ve got everything I need to make things work well, even setting up a desk in another room so my husband and I can head to separate spaces for phone calls. It’s working well so far.
- I’m still sorting out some of the changes in systems access and set up I’ll need- one of the things about internal transfers vs external hires is that it takes a bit longer to catch these things sometimes.
- I’m super excited about every project I’m getting involved with so far! They’re all things I’m super passionate about which is great.
Overall so much positive! I’m loving the role I’m in and looking forward to a great year.
